    I endorse this lawyer. As a former Deputy District Attorney, James and I worked on several cases. I always found him to be honest, ethical, and to be a zealous advocate for his clients, who would not stop until his client had received the best outcome possible.

  • Steven Tighe Rodemer

    I endorse this lawyer. I've known James for a long time, and I've always found him to be one of the most trustworthy and friendly people I've ever met. We've been opposing counsel when he was at the DA's office, and we've worked on cases together since then. He's a great attorney.
